Matt ...problems because I enjoy the idea of breaking things down to their parts. Sometimes all it takes is strengthening the foundation in order to understand things better. Other subjects I love working on are reading and writing. I write everyday myself, and know that my passion for it came from the classes I took in...
Fatima ...in too regimented a manner, as is often the case in schools. I'll help them truly grasp concepts and teach them the tips and tricks I have learned through the years. The excitement a student feels when they understand what they're doing (and not just following a set of steps) is what motivates me!...

Tom I have a passion for learning and for helping others to learn! Started teaching undergrad courses in 1991...began tutoring in 1999 and received a tutoring award from the University of Pennsylvania. I like to make hard subjects clear and easy to handle!... Usually it's part "get to know you." But then I ask them what is bothering them the most, and we start there. If we have to back up to review things, no problem; I am there to help. I try to remind students I am not their teacher or parent, and I am not judging them at all.
